DECK the halls, it’s that time of year again when bells will ring and cries of “ho, ho, ho” will resonate in malls up and down the country. It’s Christmas season again and while it is a special time for Christians celebrating the holiday, it’s also a pretty swell period for everyone in general. Here’s a list of reasons why Christmas is for everyone.

Catchy festive music

Only the scroogiest of Scrooges would be able to resist humming along merry Yuletide staples. Jingle Bells, White Christmas, All I Want for Christmas is You and several other seasonal favourites are played on repeat in the malls from November that the songs would be stuck in your head before the season is over.

Blockbuster Christmas movies galore

Major blockbuster season comes twice a year – during the summer months in the middle of the year and during the end-of year Christmas period. Star Wars: The Force Awakens, for instance, was cleverly scheduled during the holiday season this year. Additionally, there are heaps of Christmas-themed movies to suit fans of any genre. For action fans there are movies such as Die Hard; horror/black comedy buffs have Gremlins; romantics have Love Actually, kids have Home Alone and the traditionalists have It’s a Wonderful Life or Scrooged.

Christmas decoration

Who doesn’t love fairy lights and shiny baubles draped around big trees? Shopping malls and hotels go big with their yuletide decorations and a picture among the festive décor is a must among many a visitor, no matter their age or ethnicity. In past years, malls have turned their interiors into winter wonderlands, quaint Christmas villages and spaces of bright colour and cheer.

Discounts galore

This being the end-of-year holiday season also means bargains and discounts galore for shoppers.Whether it’s back-to-school items for the following school year, a new wardrobe for the busy workaholic or a treat for a year’s hard work this is the one of the best times to hit the shops.

Holiday season

It’s the school holidays but because it’s also the end of the year, it’s the time when many a worker takes off to clear their leave. Bearing this in mind there are always plenty of activities and events — Christmas and non-Christmas related — to check out. People tend to be in cheerier spirits too, as it’s the end of another year. Whether good or bad the next year is just around the corner.
